Global warming? Bah, it’s just God tilting the Earth.

So says the nutcase who wrote the following editorial:

Butch Dallmann, Moorhead, Letter: All answers can be found in the Bible

Published Thursday, September 04, 2008

Well, folks, here we go again.
First they try to make us believe in the “big-bang” theory; then the “millions of years” theory; then the “we all came from monkeys” theory or even the “sea” theory.

Let’s get into the real solution as to what happened and read the Bible. Genesis will explain how it all was created.

Now for the global warming story Al Gore and others are pushing on us; it’s time to read Genesis to Revelation in the Bible.

When God sent the rain on this Earth for 40 days and nights, all this water had to go someplace so the Earth would be dry again.

Remember, God is the Creator and controls the universe.

God tilted the Earth from its original position and caused all the excess water to rush to the poles, and there he instantly froze the water into the ice formations that exist today.

Time is ticking down on God’s time clock. With all the nuclear bombs that are made and stored for the fast-emerging last battle, this Earth would burn up when these nuclear bombs are set off.

We are not creating global warming – God is tipping the Earth back to its original position on its axis and thus getting all this ice to get ready to move and extinguish the nuclear destructive fires man will create.

Time is running out, folks. Jesus is coming soon. Do you know him as your personal Savior?

Well that explains everything. How foolish of me to think it could have possibly been anything man might have done. God tilting the Earth is a much more likely possibility than man releasing millions of tons of carbon into the atmosphere.

Ow! I think I sprained my sarcasm muscle.

Remember folks, that guy can vote.

  1. Gosh, God must have done it really, really gradually or we would have, you know, noticed that Polaris was no longer the north star and the sun and moon had incredibly different orbits.

    Or, you know, this guy is a moron, a jackass, and a dumbshit.  A trifecta of stupidity!

  2. No wonder I’ve felt more off balance in recent days. It always feels like I’m going to fall over! Sure wish God wouldn’t go and mess with everyone’s balance by tilting the Earth!

  3. Palin has to wear a coat in summer in Alaska! So much for global warming.

    Unfortunately not mine, but posted on one of the “God Kill McCain” websites you linked to.

  4. Ar….are you fucking kidding me?…there is no amount of sarcasm that can undo the stupid this man has unleashed…NONE I TELL YOU!!!!111!!!!1!!11!

  5. Tilt? Doesn’t that mean you loose the game? Ha, Ha!

    It does, if it’s windmill you’re tilting at. Because they might be Democrats disguised as windmills.

  6. I can’t take articles like these seriously. I wonder if this is just satire. It’s too stupid to be written seriously. Correction Les, we put billions of tons of CO2 in the atomsphere world wide not millions. I think its over 20 billion tons.

  7. It doesn’t worry so much that this nutcase can vote- it’s that millions of well-meaning but ill-informed people, who may not believe this, but similarly have no idea what is going on in the big world past their well-manicured lawns, can and do vote.

  8. Yes, Moloch, there are.  But I’ve read a great deal from both sides about global warming, and my conclusion is this: while there is still quite a bit of uncertainty about what will happen, and how much of it is due to us, the informed majority opinion is that it looks somewhere between bad and catastrophic, and that we are responsible for most if not all of it.  And most (not all) of the global-warming deniers are people with a vested interest in denial: those who stand to lose money if we decide to do something about it, those who have religious reasons to disbelieve it, and those who simply don’t want to face up to their responsibility to do something about it.

    That is even more true for the GW pushers. Al Gore and politicians stand to make a great deal of money selling carbon credits and technologies that will supposedly reduce or reverse global warming.

    The pushers tend to be businessmen and politicians while those that have not fallen for the bullsh!t tend to be actual credible scientists and freethinkers.

    You mean, like oil companies?  Where is the big money in this equation?  Sure, there is money to be made in alternative technologies- but it is a pittance compared to what the status quo is fighting for.

    In any case, conservation is necessary for sustainability, no matter what scenario you subscribe to.  Or do you believe that there is no end to the oil, no end to the resources of the Earth, no end to the destruction of the environment?  If you simply don’t care about the future, then I suggest that you shouldn’t have a say in what we do about it.

  11. If you simply don’t care about the future,

    That one.

    then I suggest that you shouldn’t have a say in what we do about it.

    I most certainly have a say in it just like everyone else and fucktards like you will never stop anyone from having their say! As much as I dislike the dumbasses pushing man-made global warming, its their right to voice their dumbass opinions!

    Pushing man-caused GW bullshit does nothing but harm. Many of their “alternatives” like wind farms, hydrogen, vegetable oil/ethanol, hydro (dams), coal to liquid fuel, hybrids, etc etc cause far more harm to the environment than what little oil-based energy they displace. They do nothing at all to change the climate since there is no way humans can affect the global climate. Locally, everyone has seen the brown haze over downtown but that is about the extent of it.

    Old-growth forest leveling is faster than ever in South America to make room for farms producing ethanol, corn-based products have already begun skyrocketing in cost, dams alter river ecosystems and sediment flow, wind farms kill millions of birds and bats every year, its horrific to see mining for coal turn the scenery into a wasteland, there is no way to produce large amounts of hydrogen without consuming more energy than it releases, pumping large volumes of gas causes subsidence and hybrid/electric cars produce huge numbers of toxic batteries that must be recycled.

    All of this impacts my life FAR more than the mythical man-caused GW crap.

    If we as a species can’t adapt to the earth’s naturally changing climate then we deserve to fall into panic and destroy the earth trying to “save” it from itself.

    The earth is NOT being “warmed” by anything we are doing. We are at the tail end of an ice-age. Its kind of a DUH thing really, what happens when you turn off the A/C? It starts to warm up doesn’t it? The same thing is happening to the earth and its not the first time in earth’s history!

    Look at the fossil record, specifically petrified trees. Most grew up in a year-round mild climate with no cold season and well away from the equator. Did WE cause the warm climate? Nope.

    Guess what happens in warm climates? Life flourishes! What happens in an ice age? Almost everything dies!

    A warming climate is actually a good thing! This is just the most recent doomsday fad. Hopefully soon it will die off and we can move onto the next fad just like we did thinking nuclear war/winter, phantom killer asteroids and the self-healing hole in the ozone layer would destroy life on the planet.

  12. Wow, Moloch has swallowed the GW denial kool-aid just as much as he has the racist bigot kool-aid.

    Perhaps you’re too young to remember, but there were times when the Nuclear War/Winter scenario was dangerously close to happening. The fact that it didn’t happen doesn’t mean it couldn’t. Killer asteroids are always a possibility. It’s happened before and it can happen again. That’s part of why we have a program to track NEOs. It’s a very small possibility, but it’s a credible one as history shows us. The ozone hole is getting better and that’s in part because we got rid of the CFCs that were contributing to it. The fact that it didn’t wipe out all life on Earth doesn’t mean it didn’t have an impact on it or continues to do so.

    In all honesty, I hope the climatologists are wrong about the whole global warming thing, but I remember them putting out warnings about it when I was a kid and everybody laughed at them and their computer models. As time has passed and more of that research has been vindicated fewer and fewer people are laughing about it. But even if the fears are overblown the simple fact remains that we’d be better off switching to alternative power sources as soon as possible if for no other reason than reducing our reliance on foreign oil and improving the quality of life in terms of pollution in the environment.

    We know we can have a huge impact on the environment from pollution because of past incidents such as when the Cuyahoga River caught fire multiple times due to the amount of pollution it contained.

    I find it interesting that you complained that all of the stuff you listed impacts your life far more than global warming does, but you fail to mention how it impacts your life. For that matter, if you don’t care about the future, then why you should even care.

  13. most certainly have a say in it .blah blah blah the self-healing hole in the ozone layer would destroy life on the planet.

    See, this is what happens when you let 14 year olds speak.

    And now the biggest polluter on the planet is going to ask people with out the background or qualifications to make a decision about it.

  14. Bitch doesn’t even read the bible. The bible states that god showed noah and his family a rainbow after the flood and that was God’s pact that he would never again flood the earth. Its one thing for this asshole to not know any science, but he doesn’t even know the bible he is preaching from.

  15. Typical of GW pushers, sling insults attacking the person rather than trying to attack the subject.

    At least Les put some effort into a good reply.

  16. But for a more considered response.

    I really don’t want there to be global warming. I wonder what sort of world my boys will grow up in, and their grandchildren.  However there are LOTS of scientists saying “its bad”. But when you follow the money (and the obscuration) it leads to those saying “its a lie”.

    You, like the Republican whores, are merely recycling everthing thing we hear from the fundie neo-cons.

  17. So we had a healthy navy.

    You on the other hand are proud of your attacks on race. Apparently Obama shouldn’t be president because he’s black.

    The reason I call you a 14 year old is you act like a 14 year old at that difficult stage when the brain is in transition between child and adult.  That isn’t actually an isult- that really is what many of your posts look like.

  18. See, this is why I’ve got Moloch on ignore. If everyone put him on ignore you too would only have to slap your head and acknowledge his racist idiocy when someone else decides to quote him.

    Trust me. It’s better for everyone.

  19. Apparently Obama shouldn’t be president because he’s black.

    Thats only part of it. He does not have the experience and knowledge to run the country. McCain does but we all know he will be Bush Part3 which makes him a worse choice.

    Thats why I’m hoping for Obama’s assassination BEFORE the elections. If it happened to McCain we would basically get a theocrat (Huckabee). If it happens after elections we would get a Zionist (Biden). Its our only hope to get a decent candidate (Clinton).

  20. Its one thing for this asshole to not know any science, but he doesn’t even know the bible he is preaching from.

    AngryArcheologist, you might say it’s the difference between not knowing something about the way things are and not knowing something about the way things aren’t.

    What fucking bullshit. Stand next to a running car’s exhaust pipe and breathe in deeply, Moloch.

    That would be a great way to demonstrate to you why what you consider bullshit (reducing emissions) makes several billion tons of sense even if global warming were caused solely by nature alone. It’s called “pollute less”.

    If someone makes money from cleaning up the Earth, more power (money) to him. Would be a nice change from having the big profit margins go to those who are willing to be most ruthless in whatever commercial enterprise they are engaged in.

  22. What fucking bullshit. Stand next to a running car’s exhaust pipe and
    breathe in deeply, Moloch.

    Stand next to a 1957 Chevy Bel Air and do the same with a modern car and see which one kills you first.

    Do the same with a Diesel and you will only get a headache.

  23. If someone makes money from cleaning up the Earth, more power (money) to him. Would be a nice change from having the big profit margins go to those who are willing to be most ruthless in whatever commercial enterprise they are engaged in.

    Moloch, if the government subsidies for oil went away, oil would be almost too expensive to make.  Oil companies are getting rich, they have a lobby that until recently killed technology that threatened their business.  They make tons of money, none of it honest while we get shafted at the pump.

    And you have the nerve to get UPSET when someone wants to use a FREE market to make money off of doing something GOOD for the planet?

    Wow.  You’re messed up.

  24. Thats the problem, what they are doing is NOT good for the planet!

    That’s a good one.  I forget the people you call scientists are telling you not to worry about Climate Change.  Are these the same scientists who get their money from the oil industry?  Those are the only one’s who are telling us that GCC isn’t a problem that we need to solve RIGHT NOW.  If not, please give me their names so I can hear what they have to say.

  25. Are these the same scientists who get
    their money from the oil industry?

    How funny, its always the same with your kind of fad followers.

    If somebody does not bite into the man-made global warming myth they MUST be getting paid off by Big Oil. So sad, its always Big Oil’s fault. Lets blame them for pedophiles and Nazis too.

    Then you wont have any problem answering the question.
